Review by Richie Unterberger

A good, relaxed (but not laid-back) session, and one of his bluesier ones, with organ, Clifford Scott (who played on Bill Doggett's "Honky Tonk") on sax, and T-Bone Walker on guitar. Nothing too adventurous about the song selection, including well-traveled items like "Good Rockin' Tonight" and "Kansas City," but Witherspoon sings them with ingratiating soul, reaching his peaks on his cover of "Don't Let Go" (perhaps better than the hit version by Roy Hamilton) and the late-night ambience of the title track. The CD reissue adds previously unissued alternate takes of four of the songs.

Tracklist:

01 - Money's Gettin' Cheaper 02:47

02 - Grab Me A Freight 03:43

03 - Don't Let go 02:47

04 - I've Been Treated Wrong 03:25

05 - Evenin' 02:41

06 - Cane River 02:30

07 - How Long Blues 02:46

08 - Good Rockin' tonight 02:41

09 - Kansas City 03:03

10 - Drinking Beer 02:13

11 - Don't Let go 02:38

12 - I've Been Treated Wrong 03:15

13 - Evenin' 02:41

14 - Cane River 02:32





Gamble for more Jimmy Witherspoon
